complicated. after a bad week of polling for mitt romney, top staffers held a conference call with reporters that enumerated their reasons why they see mitt romney as a shoe in despite the polling. they suggested their secret sauce that's more important than the polling is that mr. romney is winning independents. so there. romney has this thing in the bag. carl rove, for the republicans this year, he took to "the wall street journal" this week to patiently explain to the people who don't understand that these numbers that look so bad for mr. romney do not matter or they are wrong. or they are wrong and they don't noe matter. because he says democrats are not winning early voting by enough. and he says the polls make assumptions about turnout that he describes as absurd. it also describes some stuff that makes him believe romney is going to win like crowd size and closing arguments. that shows that mitt romney is totally going to win this thing. both are trying to convince the country it's obvious they are going to win. it's worth listening to the arguments and checking to see if the argument
of mitt romney among likely voters in the battleground states of virginia. in virginia, a reuters poll has president obama at 49% and mitt romney at 45%. in florida, reuters has president obama at 48% and mitt romney at 46%. in michigan, a ppp poll has president obama at 52% and mitt romney at 46%. and in colorado, a ppp poll has president obama at 50% and mitt romney at 46%. in new hampshire, a new england college poll has president obama at 50% and mitt romney at 44%. tonight, nate silver the "new york times" blog forecasts that president obama has an 81% of winning re-election and that he will win 304 electoral college votes and mitt romney will within 234. and the great thing about next week is i will no longer have to say ppp poll. i'm done with that poll. these polls are tight. these polls, you know, i refuse to use the language the poll shows president obama winning 50, because every one of these polls is within the margin of error. every one of them. so they are really showing something that could be a tie, could be tight. for incumbents this is not considered particularly strong p
consistently shown romney with a slight lead since, you know, mid october or so, but the state polls continue to show obama with a, some advantages in the electoral votes, so, i think both sides are looking at the polls and seeing hope. >> dan, let's step back briefly here, how important is this election? we always say the elections are the most important in x years, but i think this is the most important election since ronald reagan certainly in terms of setting the direction of the country and validating or not the huge expansion of government that barack obama has promoted in the first term. >> i agree, paul. i mean, historically the country is divided in the past century between the private economy and the public government. and there's always been a division of duties there. barack obama is trying to take spending from 20% of grosse pointe woods over the last 25 years up to about 23%. >> paul: for the starters. >> for starters and plus, make the federal government the lead role in the direction of the economy in a way that no previous president has ever done and i think that that is the
: >> mitt romney will not be president unless he outperforms the polls if the polls are not capturing the intensity behind mitt romney's superintendent porers or in some way they're exaggerating president obama's support -- gwen: where is the intensity right now? is it with the republicans or the democrats? >> we have it equal. in our polls they're equally inspired. that's exactly right. >> republicans think they have an advantage. >> it's dispor portion -- disproportion nat with white voters. african-americans are also pretty energized but latinos which the president is dominating are not. young voters are not. both of those are underperforming in terms of interest in the election and motivation. that's where the president's challenge is. he's got to make sure that he could harvest all the votes that shows up in these polls from latinos and from young voters. >> and gwen, just to follow on amy's point, barack obama sbrang to celebrity status with that speech of not white america, red, america. if he wins he's going to win because he was the president of black america, hispanic americ
: the most recent poll of ohio mirrors those tight national polls. rasmussen reports showing governor romney tied with president obama at 49%. nationally the dead heat can be seen across a white canvas of polls. the real clear politics bulbuls has the two men separated tonight by a mere tenth of a percenge point to. the rasmussen reports daily tracking poll has the race at 48%. the abc ashington post tracking poll shows the governor taking a one point lead after trailing b one yesterday. those of the two most recent national polls. and while the polls are tight, they are not always accurate or indicative of the of come. either candidate could win this election by a sizable margin, if you considea sizable margin to be two or 3 percent, perhaps, regardless of what these polls are saying today. one group or demographic, like independent vters, could swing the election in the waning hours of the campaign. and what should worry the obama campaign with their race so tight that you can hear is quilt is not the unraving cover-up on been gauzy or a bust response to a major east coast hurricane. what
? >> polls show americans care more about the economy and jobs. polls show voters think romney can fix the economy and create jobs. but the media aren't connecting the dots. why not? find out next on news watch. [ rosa ] i'm rosa and i quit smoking with chantix. when the doctor told me that i could smoke for the first week... i'm like...yeah, ok... little did i know that one week later i wasn't smoking. [ male announcer ] along with support, chantix is proven to help people quit smoking. it reduces the urge to smoke. some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. if you notice any of these stop taking chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of depression or other mental health problems, which could get worse while taking chantix. don't take chantix if you've had a serus allergic or skin reaction to it. if you develop these stop taking chantix and see your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. if you have a history of hear
a difference in polls from the nbc marist poll and local polls show romney is up more than we're indicating. >> first of all, i think both sides genuinely think they're going to win or certainly think they have a great chance of winning. that said, pennsylvania has always been fool's gold for republicans. it looks tempting at the end. they might go for it. >> sounds good on paper. >> but they don't get it. now if the new nbc marist poll is correct about florida, florida can decide it before we even, you know, do the late-night counting of the absentee ballots out of cleveland. i mean because florida, if that goes for president obama, that's pretty much the story, i think. >> mr. caputo, let me bring new you've in on this. the poll shows two point ahead for governor romney in florida, that within the margin of error. my team and i were struck with looking at the lines of people early voting in that state today. >> well, those lines are really going to be the indication of how this campaign is going to go. we've had gangbusters early voting turnout in florida. about two million people in a we
. it is terrible for romney. maybe the polls are wrong, but if you're looking at the polls right now, obama has got it. >> did romney have momentum or was that just republican spin? >> he did have momentum after the first debate -- >> we have had a three since then -- >> what obama was never able to recapture the lead. >> i cannot say with certainty that there was momentum, no momentum. i cannot tell. you look at the polls hour after hour and you get a sense that this thing is very tight, even when you go to some of the battle ground states. >> yes, the first debate made an enormous difference in the campaign. it allowed mitt romney to reintroduce himself with no opposition on the part of the president as the moderate massachusetts reasonable mitt. gone was the saber-rattling mitt, keep out the foreigners mitt, round up the suspects mitt and send them to practice -- [laughter] he became reasonable, intelligent, poised, forget the cayman islands and the swiss bank accounts. frank bruni of "the new york times" made a telling point -- the first debate was important because it may president obama in th
ultimately do have it going blue if you look at the polls. romney has never led in iowa, interestingly even though as you pointsed out the democrats held a slight advantage in voting in registration numbers in 2008. they are turning out the same number in terms of early votes. they have a 60,000 vote advantage this year at this time versus in 2008 which is the same. so i think ultimately it is going to go to president obama. >> i have it going red but, again, i think we put up that chart of presidential voting history since 1972 it's picked republican president five times, a democrat president five times. guess this is like the rubber match. just quickly want to note that yesterday i laid down some smack is what i did. >> a group smack down. >> i spoke for the group. yes. when i made some intimidating remarks. take a look. with all due respect mr. mayor, what the hell your thinking? heartbroken residents of the five boroughs do not want to watch out of towners jog through their neighborhood as they dig out of wreckage. so do the right thing postpone this race mayor bloomberg. so you're welc
and lots of polls we have seen across the country, mitt romney is leading among independents. this is going down to the wire. we won't know until late tuesday or early wednesday how it all shapes up. >> heather: early wednesday. thank you so much. we appreciate it. coming up in the next hour we will bring you governor romney's final remarks of the day live from inglewood, colorado. >> we want to take a live look where president obama is set to speak in a campaign event in the battleground state of wisconsin. president is about to take the stage any moment now. grammy award winner katie perry has been firing up the crowd there. this will be the president's final visit in wisconsin before tuesday's election over the last couple of days. the president has been coming under fire from critics who say, he should have sacrificed more time away from the campaign to focus squarely on the federal response to hurricane sandy. the president maintains that the recovery effort continues to be his number one priority. you can watch the president's entire remarks streaming live on foxnews.com. >> gregg: to
well. every public poll shows the president leading mitt romney by a substantial margin in the early vote. one thing that i will say about the romney campaign, the republicans more in general they learned from their mistakes four years ago. they've been out since may you know gathering data, trying to connect with people. they boast their door-knocking operation although it's hard to quantify how many doors you've actually knocked on. they say they've knocked on over 1 million to 2 million doors in this cycle. it will be interesting to see what the final tally. it's important to note that this weekend you can go and vote in person at the board of elections. this is something that the democrats, the obama campaign fought for heavily. they sued the state of ohio to reopen this window that was available in 2008. it was closed last year, and now it's back open, you're seeing a lot of activity surrounding a lot of local churches labor groups driving people to vote in person. >> jennifer: we're also watching the backlash from the jeep ad which the cleveland dealer was admonishing governor
of cleveland, ohio. the latest nbc news/"wall street journal"/marist poll shows romney trailing. the president has a lead in florida, at this point, two point. that is well within the margin of error and, finally, here is the national picture and it could not be closer. our poll of polls shows 47% apiece. >>> president obama is slamming governor romney over an ad his campaign is running in the key battleground state of ohio. watch. >> look, i understand governor romney has had a tough time here in ohio because he was against saving the auto industry. and it's hard to run away from a position when you're on videotape saying, let detroit go bankrupt. but, but, you've got to own what you say. this isn't a game. these are people's jobs at stake. these are people's lives. you don't scare hard-working americans just to scare up some votes. that's not what being president is all about. >> the president was responding to this romney ad that implied the auto bailout plan failed and chrysler will move jobs to china. that's a claim that chrysler has vehemently denied. >>> on the other side of ohio, mitt
see in the latest poll, averaged from real clear politics, he still is. this is why mitt romney is desperately campaigning in pennsylvania. it is a hail mary pass because he knows he's probably going to lose ohio. in wisconsin, president obama maintains a comfortable five-point lead. president obama is also maintaining his lead in nevada. in iowa, president obama is still ahead. the national average is closer, but president obama has been on the rise there as well. so early voting has been going on for weeks now. in some states, and there are some interesting numbers on party breakdown of early voters so far. now, most early voters have been identified as democrats in ohio, nevada, iowa, florida, and north carolina according to the associated press. republicans have the edge in colorado. let's turn to bob shrum, professor of public policy at nyu and contributor to the daily beast. great to have you with us tonight. let's leave the names out of it for a moment. obama and romney. let's just take candidate a and candidate b. who would you want to be right now with the numbers playi
poll showed obama leading romney by three points here, i interviewed govern nor both of them were dismissing public polling saying our models show that the turnout is going to favor republicans. republicans are more enthusiastic. but i went out this morning with some afl-cio organizers. people are talking about turnout. the obama campaign says they've contacted over 120 million vote ners all these battleground states. they have a larger and more sophisticated ground operation. so that's what going on in the end. it's going to come down to turnout. this is a base election. and that's what both campaigns are doing right now is getting their people to vote early, either the obama campaign is doing their famous souls to the polls push tomorrow morning after churches. that's what we're looking at now. >> peter doing some good reporting for us in clumus ohio. still to come, more on the race for the white house. we've got a lot more on the race for the white house. >>> we're also following the aftermath of the superstorm sandy, four days in a shelter with no shower. we're going to take y
this morning. the polls show romney is narrowing the gap with romney in that state. can he realistically hope to take the state this fllate in t campaign? >> reporter: no republican hopeful has won the presidential campaign since 1980. paul ryan is not the only one who's coming to this state. mitt romney will be here in pennsylvania as well tomorrow in suburban philadelphia. that swing part of the state is really the swing part of the state will determine who wins it. 21 electoral votes up for grabs. you were just mentioning bill clinton. he is coming here to campaign in pennsylvania on monday. jill bide season here today as well. both sides going up with a lot of ads now. i turned on the tv last night, watching the local news, tons of ads. almost ten million ads in the closing ten days of this campaign. by a two to one margin, it's romney or romney allied ads running many this state. here's the most recent poll from franklin and marshall. just a four-point advantage. he used to have a double digit advantage in this state, which didn't see much action in these final weeks. >> and earlier toda
states a tougher challenge for romney. obama campaign officials argue polls of early voters in battleground states suggest their bank of obama votes means romney will have to win on election day well more than half the votes in key states to win. but the president is not relying solely on early voting or even on this new rekindled bipartisan pitch. in this state alone, diane, president obama and his allies have run 16,000 more ads than romney and his allies. and if that's not enough for you, on monday, president obama will be back here in ohio with bruce springsteen. diane? >> okay, thank you, jake. >>> and also tonight, the latest in our brand new daily abc news/"washington post" polls. tonight, the poll gives mitt romney a one-point edge. so, we asked abc's david muir to tell us his strategy for the final sprint. >> reporter: mitt romney bolting through the battlegrounds. today, on the campaign plane, it was the candidate taking pictures. romney capturing images of his staff sneaking a nap, as romney faces to the finish. in just the last 24 hours, virginia -- >> virginia,
a two-point edge. that's within the sampling error. but a mason dixon poll shows obama trailing romney by six percentage points, so a mixed picture there from two different polls in such a key state. >> democrats are hoping, they're only three days away from taking back control of the u.s. house, but as athena jones reports, they face an uphill battle. >> republicans won control of the house in 2010. riding a wave of victory by tea party-backed candidates carrying a message of fiscal conservatism and strong opposition to obama care. so what's going to happen this time around? >> it's all got to go! >> back in september, nancy pelosi had high hopes for her party's prospects. >> we have a very excellent chance to take back the house. >> so did republican house speaker john boehner. >> i continue to feel confident about house republicans' chances of holding on to our majority. >> republicans have 242 seats to the democrats' 193. so democrats need a net gain of 25 seats to win the majority. analysts say that's not likely to happen. >> the republicans will control the house again after nove
romney by just three points in ohio, razor-thin lead within the poll's margin of error. >> our national political correspondent jim acosta and white house correspondent jessica yellin. the candidates' messages are very different but their itinerary couldn't be more similar, could it? >> that's right. they are basically battling for the same swing states over the next three days, three final days of this m campaign. mitt romney is in ohio right now, he goes to new hampshire tomorrow morning, then heads to iowa, colorado and later this weekend, heading into monday, he goes to virginia and florida. you know, anderson, you can lay the battleground map for president obama and mitt romney almost on top of one another, because their schedules are so similar. >> jessica, all year long, people have been pointing to this final jobs report the weekend before the election day. doesn't seem to have made much of a splash, does it? >> reporter: a little bit of both, anderson. the jobs numbers in the end seem to be sort of a wash. they give something for both campaigns to talk about. the president toda
